Transforming students into tomorrow's nurse leaders.

Nursing is one of the world's most life-changing professions, which is why it requires life-changing education. Our professors prepare nurses to provide holistic health care — considering the patient's body, mind and spirit — through a curriculum grounded in Catholic Benedictine values.

For over a century, we've been providing top-quality nursing education programs and our School of Nursing has grown to be the second largest in the state of Minnesota. We're proud to have been recognized by Nursing Schools Almanac as one of the top nursing schools in the Plains region, as well as one of the top nursing schools in the country.

At The College of St. Scholastica, we teach students to care for others by first caring for them.

Whether your program is online or on campus, you'll find professors who care and take a personal interest in helping you achieve your career goals.
